What's New in Version 1.2.1
Support iOS 6
Our school utilizes the full program and the kids love it! They don't typically struggle until they reach the challenge section with Big Seed and Kick Box. I also allow students to play the apps during math centers. I know that the makers of this program would like to see kids persevere in solving a puzzle, but sometimes a little hint is needed. For the full program I have made "cheat sheets" for my students. After they have made so many attempts on a particular puzzle I will help them by telling them where one laser or one bar definitely belongs. This helps them tremendously, even when there are five more bars and lasers that still need to be placed. I would like to see this as an added feature in an update to the apps, especially Kick Box.
Challenging spatial relations game
This is a fun way to practice spatial relations problem solving. I enjoy playing it as an adult and my child enjoys it too. However we have gotten stuck on one problem and can't advance, and there is no help available. Please, please, add a hint feature. Perhaps the hint could become available after a certain amount of working time has lapsed without success. If there were help, I could rate this 5 stars.
I play STmath every day, and I have people at kickbox saying," it's really hard, don't even try."
so ive been getting the big seed and kickbox apps, and as a student, it doesn't help a bit.
I know the basics, but after that, your on your own, and you get confused and frustrated, what's the point of a learning app when you make no progress in 5 days? At least make a hint button-oh wait, STmath doesn't do that, I have to ask my teacher... WELL MY TEACHER ISN'T MY MOM STMATH!
and do you possibly THINK I'm gonna email my teacher to help me with a kick box question? NO!
